Do you have one good reason for this?
I think I can have many reasons why I don't want to create a local development environment.
Say if I can't install a database or port 80 not available for apache or no disk space or it is not my personal computer or.......
That way, I would love to be able to edit files directly on my FTP server.
And I can have backup on my FTP, so I cannot mess things up too bad that I have no way to recover my changes.
